University of Cincinnati (UC) athletic director, Mike Bohn, and coach, Tommy Tuberville, have unveiled a new design rendering and spoken about some of the details of the currently-under construction Nippert Stadium.
With the stadium set to reopen in September, its US$86m renovation and expansion, which is being led by Turner Construction, will increase seating from 35,000 to 40,000.
“It includes a structure on the west side that stretches for almost 130 yards and rises five stories above the stadium concourse,” said Bill Koch.
“It contains four levels – a press and operations suite with seating for 100 reporters, a suite level, patio suites level, and scholarship club seats level.
“UC will go from having almost no premium seating options to the addition of 1,100 scholarship club suites and more than 50 indoor and outdoor suites of varying sizes,” Koch continued.
“In addition, the concourses on both sides of the stadium have been widened and furnished with new restrooms and concession facilities.”
